Oh Wow! – ABC’s of Setswana Names, Humans of Port Elizabeth and Aquarelle.

In a super colourful edition of Oh Wow! we’ve got some beautifully illustrated GIFs of Setswana names, a video series paying tribute to the creative talent in Port Elizabeth and haunting, pastel coloured acrylic paintings.

 

ONE – Illustrated GIFs depicting the ABC’s of Setswana Names by Thandiwe Tshabalala. Also check out a previous and equally lovely series by her on the ABC’s of Xhosa Names.

 

It has become embedded in the Batswana people to name the offsprings and award names that reflect or depict the great work of God. Every Setswana name revolves around the deeds or aspirations and plans of the Almighty. When looking at the names (illustrated) you will learn that every one of the names reflects on the happiness, sadness and hope brought upon by God. Each name is a symbol to the parents of what they want to see from you or what your birth meant at that moment in time. C,X,Q,V,J,Z (these alphabets do not exist in the Setswana vocabulary) U,H,Y( these alphabets do exist however we do not have names that begin with them).
